another bag design!
this one was a lot more fun to do and im really happy with it uou
If you have been on Tumblr on the past couple of days, it’s likely that you’ve seen this post. I happened to stumble upon it randomly on my dashboard and usually, I scroll past really long texts but this one caught me by surprise because I recognized every single person in this photo. This was posted by someone I know very well who currently goes by the name Lexus Willow, but I know her as ‘Lex’. Lex and I were really close about four (maybe five? idk) years ago. We were best friends so obviously, I know each and every one of the people in that photo by name.
While true, her home life wasn’t ever ideal (her mom made us stop listening to ‘I Kiss A Girl’ at her 16th birthday party because they didn’t support that in their house) but honestly, her life isn’t as bad as she’s making it out to be. While her parents weren’t supportive of her being gay, the reason they are so harsh on her is because of her own dumb life choices. She has done tons of incredibly shitty things to her family that left be absolutely dumbstruck. She goes off with girl after girl, saying they’re the one, write them pretty songs but use them and uses her family as a springboard when she has nowhere else to go.
She admitted to cheating on her ex-fiancee with dozens of girls, but plays if off to everyone as she was the victim and everything was this girls fault. She uses the people around her, including her family. In fact, this one girl was at her graduation party, interacting with her mother and they knew who she was.
Lex’s life is far from perfect. She’s had a pretty rough past with being adopted and sure, her parents aren’t always 100% supportive of her lifestyle choices, but this isn’t a strict matter of her being queer. It’s her as a person. I normally wouldn’t really care that she’s getting attention for this but the fact that people are sending her MONEY to meet up with a girl she’s never met before (she does this a lot, btw) and say they want to write to Ellen is absolutely preposterous. Until Lex gets her life straightened out, this is not what she needs. She needs her family and you are all enabling her to continue on with her bad habits.
If you see posts about her, especially about donating money or writing to Ellen, PLEASE RESIST. There are so many more people who deserve this more than her and her family are NOT bad people. They aren’t evil. They truly want what’s best for their daughter, biological or not, and this is going to rip their family apart. I hope I don’t come across as a bitter person, but it honestly disgusts me that people are feeding into this when it’s not true.
If Lex sees this, I’m really sorry. I care about you deeply but this is going too far and you KNOW IT. You are stealing people’s money for your selfish needs and lying to them and it has to end. There are people out there who really are in horrible situations with no support whatsoever and they aren’t being heard but for some reason, people are eating this up, even though you’re the one who ripped your face off of that picture and have admitted to that. Please, please stop. I’m sure you could easily figure out who this is, maybe not, but I really think people deserve to know this. Your family loves you and this will tear them apart.
Just be careful with this money business everyone.
au where gatsby and nick get married and gatsby’s vows are all addressed to old sport and when the preacher asks if he takes nicholas carraway to be his lawfully wedded husband, gatsby just stands there in confusion for a few minutes and eventually confesses that he has no idea who nicholas carraway is he’s here to marry old sport

Ok Go - Here It Goes Again
Imagine your life as yourself standing over a wooden barrel that is half filled with marble. Everyone around you has their own barrel half full of marbles that is their lives.
Each marble represents an accomplishment ,a good deed, a good feeling.
Let’s say the barrels are all half full of marbles that represent love and praise you received from your parents, grandparents, your family, etc. I know not everyone starts out in real life with that kind of loving support, but for this, we’re going to imagine the barrels are all half full.
It’s now your job to fill the barrel the rest of the way up with marbles on your own.
You get a good grade on a paper. You add a marble to your barrel.
You tell a joke and people laugh. You add a marble to your barrel.
You get hired for a job. You add a marble to your barrel.
Someone nice tells you they find you attractive. You add a marble to your barrel.
You clean the kitchen. You add a marble to your barrel.
You receive a hug from your friend. You add a marble to your barrel.
You donate money to a charity. You add a marble to your barrel.
You make someone smile. You both add a marble to your barrel.
But you have to take marbles out of your barrel when something happens that makes you feel bad or you don’t accomplish something.
You don’t wash the dishes and the food gets all hard and dried on them. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You are late for work. You take a marble out of your barrel.
A family member yells at you. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You meet someone you think is cute but they only seem interested in talking to your friends. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You don’t pay a bill on time. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You skip a meal because you’re too fat. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You get a cold. You take a marble out of your barrel.
Someone spreads a nasty rumor about you. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You try to talk to someone about your problem and they don’t want to listen. You take a marble out of your barrel.
So you’re trying to fill up your barrel.
But you have depression. You’re like a wind-up toy that keeps running down and having to be rewound. You’re still moving, still putting marbles into your barrel, but you have to stop and wind yourself up frequently.
Every time you do this, you’re losing time that you could be using to gain marbles to put in your barrel.
You look around and it’s like everyone you see is steadily putting marbles into their barrels, and you notice their barrels are looking a lot more full than yours. When you notice this, you take a marble out of your barrel.
After a while, others start to notice your barrel is not filling up as fast and start talking to each other about it. You take a marble out of your barrel.
They tell you to spend less time winding yourself up and more time collecting marbles. But it’s like they’re running on electric batteries and don’t understand that you have to wind yourself up or you’ll stop completely. You take a marble out of your barrel.
Some people even pick up marbles that should have been yours, because you’re not filling your barrel fast enough. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You criticize yourself to figure out what’s wrong with you, why you are wind-up and not battery operated. You take a marble out of your barrel.
When your barrel isn’t filling up, you get really angry and disappointed with yourself. You take a marble out of your barrel.
Your gears are getting worn down from so much winding. Your movements become jerky instead of smooth. You put more effort into moving more slowly and smoothly so no one will notice and criticize you. If they notice, you take a marble out of your barrel.
With worn gears, you can’t run as long as you used to. You are taking even longer to gain marbles for your barrel, You take a marble out of your barrel.
Eventually so many marbles are gone that your barrel is nearly empty. You might still be adding some marbles, but they don’t make you feel very good about it. The marbles look pretty small and insignificant in the vast emptiness of your barrel. When you notice this, you take a marble out of your barrel.
With an rapidly emptying barrel, you can’t seeing the point of evening bothering to wind yourself up anymore. You’ll never get caught up now. You take a marble out of your barrel.
Others can’t see into the bottom of your barrel like you can. They can only see the top part of your barrel. They know your barrel isn’t as full as it should be, but they think you still have plenty of marbles left. They still think you can afford to lose a few marbles to criticism and they believe pointing out what is wrong will motivate you to fix it so you’ll get busy gaining more marbles. You take a marble out of your barrel.
You are staring down into the vast emptiness of your barrel all the time and you don’t tell them that you are almost out of marbles. You don’t want to talk about it. You take a marble out of your barrel.
When you get down to your last few marbles in the bottom of your barrel, you take out your windup key and throw it away.
And the people around you who have their barrels half full can’t understand why.
Anxiety isn’t a fashion statement it’s a miserable disorder with actual real uncontrollable symptoms that eat you alive and distance you from the people you love so stop making it “trendy”
